The Anime Nostalgia Podcast - ep 84: Anime Cels & Cel Collecting with Jen & Stephanie

Subscribers! Be sure to go to the blog to read the description easier & check out links for this episode!

Older fans often talk about how much they miss the look of anime that was hand drawn & painted on cels, but if you’re a younger fan you might have thought at some point, “What does that mean, exactly? What are cels?” Or maybe you’re an older fan and have always been curious about the world of cel collecting, but never knew where to start. Well, you’re in luck! Long time collectors Stephanie & Jen join me in today’s episode to have a convo with me all about them, and their experience with collecting cels for over 20 years! How do they store them? What are some things you should know? Even I learned new things about cels, so maybe you will too!

  1. That's a funny coincidence, they live a couple hours from me and I've sold to them before. I'm another collector myself -

    Loved hearing a podcast about this

  2. I really enjoyed this podcast. It was fun listening to you girls explaining the fun and trouble collecting cels. I used to collect anime cels myself back around 1995-2005 and I was listening to the whole podcast while putting some of my cels into clear file folders and getting rid of their plastic wrappings from japanese dealers now that I have time during the corona virus lockdown.
